11th Annual Taste of Temescal


Taste of Temescal

In light of the latest guidance from Governor Newsom, we will be postponing the Taste of Temescal, likely to May 2020. We will issue refunds to all who would like one. We will be honoring all the tickets at our postponed event and so urge all who can, to keep their tickets, since the proceeds go to our local schools and nonprofits: Claremont Middle SchoolEmerson Elementary SchoolOakland Technical High SchoolLa Clínica de La Raza, and Studio One Art Center

Rather than attending our event next week, we hope that our community will patronize our local restaurants in Temescal during this time (whether you choose to dine in or take out). Our restaurants depend on the continuing support of customers to continue to employ their workers, and to allow our restaurants to remain open now and to sustain them through this public health emergency to continue to offer amazing food for many years to come.

To request a ticket refund (if you bought tickets online), please contact Brown Paper Tickets. Please have your order confirmation number handy. They available 27/7/365 via email : support@brownpapertickets.com and via phone: (800) 838-3006. Or if you purchased your ticket in person, please contact where you purchased it. If you have issues or further questions, please contact the Temescal BID: info@temescaldistrict.org.


A unique experience that only Temescal can provide. Food, Beverage, Music, and Family Fun... A great way to spend an evening while supporting local schools and non profits!
